Explore the nooks and crannies of Norwich’s artistic spaces

Norwich, Norfolk

Norwich is full of cultural activities, with many arts venues found in surprising places, some amongst its most beautiful gardens and public spaces.

Norwich Cathedral Close bursts with cherry blossom and tulips come spring, an eruption of colour against the monuments of Admiral Lord Nelson, WWI hero Edith Cavell and its public art.

Stroll around the sculpture gardens of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts before heading in for tea and homemade cake in the sophisticated glass-walled restaurant. The gallery’s collection spans over 5,000 years of world-class art, including renowned UK artists like Henry Moore and Francis Bacon.

Next explore the dark nooks and crannies of Norwich Castle’s Norman keep and the art gallery’s ever-changing exhibition space, where you’ll find the Norwich School painters. The Gallery at Norwich University of the Arts showcases young regional talent, as well as playing host to internationally important exhibitions.

And if you go in May, make sure you pay a visit to the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, which, established in 1772, is one of England’s longest-running arts festivals.
